I can't speak for non-US consumer laws so you need to compare what your local consumer laws have to offer and compare that to AC+Do you recommend going for AC+? it costs 449 Euros
the only exception in my case is the air pods pro. Got AC+ as it was cheap.Have you check with your home insurance?
My home insurance cover any repair upp to XX€ (depends on what you sign up for) to a deductible cost of €130.
With that said I never buy extra insurance for any gadgets.
I thought AC+ is only available to buy for up to 2 months after the device is bought. No?If I decide to keep my 16" then I think I'll put off the £399 AC+ purchase and see how things roll for a few months. Might then buy AC (for the same price) before 12 months is up. Seems a grey area as to how this is done but I've got a transcript from online Apple chat stating it can be done and they even shared a link to make the purchase.
May be i am missing the point but I thought AC+ covers accidental damage and repair costs (with an excess amt) during its tenure. Its in addition to the warranty and consumer laws.I never, ever buy extended warranties on low-cost items. Yes, the MBP is a low-cost item. Most people (pay attention to that caveat of "most people") who do, end up paying far more for warranties than they would for repairs—over time. Now, with something complex and expensive it makes sense, like a new car. A washer, a computer, a wifi router, no, no and no. It's easy money for the company providing them. But even then, my last car, I didn't buy the extra warranty. And you know what? It's fine. It's been fine for a long time. Same with all but one other car, which turned out to be a real problem child and I'll mention it in the second paragraph.
Most quality products come with a year warranty anyway, including the MacBook Pro. A lot of stuff that happens systemwide ends up being covered even past that (like the delaminating 2014/15 screens and 2016-2018 butterfly keyboards). Example: I own this car (mentioned above), it's broken down four freakin' times. Only one time was the repair something not on a recall where I had to pay for the repair, the other three were covered by the manufacturer well past the initial warranty. If I had bought their $5,000 extended warranty I wouldn't have had to pay for that one $900 repair. So, I'm still up $4,100 on that decision since even that warranty would be expired now.
I get it for someone who just wants to have that peace of mind for, what is it, three years? If that's worth it to you and you're a worrier, fine, but I want to point out that in the long run you are wasting some money if you do this all the time. Companies wouldn't offer these warranties if they weren't profitable.
That's what I thought too but wanted to know if AC (not AC+) was available beyond 2 months. According to the Apple rep (with chat transcript) I could buy AC (not AC+) between 2 months and 1 year for £399. Same as + but without the accident cover. Rep even sent me direct link to complete the purchase.I thought AC+ is only available to buy for up to 2 months after the device is bought. No?
I wish that was the case but from what I've read, the customer has to jump through a load of hoops to prove how the issue is the manuf's responsibility etc. The likes of Apple may occasionally give people free keyboards for 4 yrs as they hold their hands up to that one, but a logic board failure after 27 months is less likely to get fixed for free.Dont forget you will also be covered by EU consumer laws on minimum guarantees, which usually last for two years.

Yep I am aware local and EU laws and it may not be a whole load of hoops after all. Small claims procedure is the way to go if someone wants to recoup some of the costs provided they have engaged with seller without any outcome.I wish that was the case but from what I've read, the customer has to jump through a load of hoops to prove how the issue is the manuf's responsibility etc. The likes of Apple may occasionally give people free keyboards for 4 yrs as they hold their hands up to that one, but a logic board failure after 27 months is less likely to get fixed for free.
Yep based on selling experience here. I dont try hard enough but they do lose out a lot in value. I will doing good if i get 1500 euros.Sounds like a lot.
You mean that used 16" will cost $1300-$1560 this December?
